THAT'S A RELIEF ... TO SOME

Very limited blogging from hereon-in until late March.   I'm hither and yon doing Gods work culminating in my Victor 3 Company reunion in Blenheim where we will remembering Mike Wickman and Don Bensemann, KIA on 22 June and 16 November 1968 respectively.

Mike's death featured in the acclaimed TV documentary 'Baptism of Fire'.   He is buried at Papatoetoe.   Don is buried at Omaka (near Blenheim) and we will be holding the memorial service at his graveside.   We will remember them.

Back to regular blogging on 27 March.

See you there but don't let Surfie navigate. It took a couple of Platoon Sigs to find Don's grave at Omaka.

Don Benseman - Regular Force Cadet 1965. Immense potential, sadly never realised. RIP Don your duty done

It affected me quite a lot to read about these men, who died while I was at school. Then after school like little prats we would discuss the merits or otherwise of Vietnam at coffee bars,
and we knew nothing of what we were talking about.
